The Clay County chapter of the United Way is set to host its Campaign Kickoff Luncheon noon Oct. 24 at the Civic.

United Way raises and allocates funds for 14 human service organizations serving the residents of Clay County. Stacy Hays, executive director of United Way of Clay County, explained that these agencies touch the lives of thousands of people each year.
â€śWe do this every year,â€ť said Hays. â€śItâ€™s an hour-long luncheon where we recognize volunteers and announce our goals for the year. Itâ€™s a celebration of everyone involved with United Way.â€ť
